87 XJ needs new shocks which ones

Ok so after many years of owning my xj and my lift my shocks are worn, my xj has a 4.5 pro-comp lift I need new shocks which one? I didn't like the pro comp ones. Point me to some good shocks at great price.

If you want a quality shock that will provide a great ride, bilstein or Old Man Emu are two of the best. Both will set you back around 325.00 a set though. Almost all twin tube hydraulic shocks will ride about the same as your pro-comp shocks, nitrogen shocks will be firmer. So if you want cheaper shocks I would go with the best deal you can find from skyjacker, rancho, rough country, or who-ever.

Bilstein 5100's all the way, I just put on my second set (not due to failure, but me lifting it more and the first set being to short), got them in 170/60 valving this time the ride is much nicer than the last set with the harder valving.
